INSURANCE AGAINST NUTRITIONAL GAPS IN THE DIET


CALCIUM OVERVIEW

Calcium is a major structural element in bones and teeth, it plays a critical role in regulating the constriction and relaxation of blood vessels, nerve impulse transmission, muscle contraction, and the secretion of hormones like insulin, growth hormone, and sex hormones. Calcium supplementation may helps:

  • Prevent age-releated bone loss
  • Improve high blood pressure
  • Improve pH balance

CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS IN-DEPTH

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body. About 99% of the calcium in the body is found in bones and teeth, while the other 1% is found in the blood and soft tissue. Thus It is essential for the development and maintenance of healthy bones and strong teeth. Calcium plays a critical role in regulating the constriction and relaxation of blood vessels, nerve impulse transmission, muscle contraction, and the secretion of hormones like insulin, growth hormone, and sex hormones. The biological functions of calcium int he human body are so cricial that the body demineralizes our bones to maintain normal blood calcium levels when calcium intake is inadequate. Inadequate calcium intake in growing individuals may prevent the attainment of optimal peak bone mass. In adults inadequate calcium intake contributes to accelerated bone loss and to the development of osteoporosis. People who don't get enough calcium may be at higher risk for hypertension, and studies suggest that calcium supplementation may lower blood pressure and may play a role in the prevention of pregnancy-induced high blood pressure and preeclampsia. Studies also found that inadequate calcium intake seem to have been associated with a increased incidence of being overweight or obese.

 

HELPS PREVENT AGE-RELEATED BONE LOSS AND OSTEOPOROSIS

Calcium is a major structural element in bones and teeth. Inadequate calcium intake in children may prevent the attainment of optimal peak bone mass, and in adults contributes to accelerated bone loss and to the development of osteoporosis. Thus calcium is the nutrient consistently found to be most important for attaining peak bone mass and preventing osteoporosis. Studies have shown that calcium, particularly in combination with vitamin D, can help prevent bone loss associated with menopause, as well as the bone loss experienced by older women. According to the official recommendations the optimal treatment of osteoporosis includes 1,200mg daily intake of calcium and 600IU daily intake of vitamin D.

 

IMPROVES HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

Studies have shown that diets rich in magnesium and calcium do seem to have some protective effect and that people who follow diets low in magnesium and/or calcium seem to develop high blood pressure at a higher rate. A large meta-analysis review of 42 study found that calcium supplementation has a significant effect on blood pressure, and may reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Researchers suggest that a calcium intake at the 1,000-1,200 mg daily level may be helpful in preventing and treating hypertension. In addition a population-based study people who take in more calcium were less likely to have a stroke over a 14-year period.

 

MAY HELP TO TREAT PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME (PMS)

Studies found that a low dietary calcium intake is linked to PMS, and calcium supplementation may alleviate symptoms, such cramps, and pain, irritability, depression, and fluid retention. In a placebo-controlled clinical study researchers found that 1,200 mg daily calcium supplementation was associated with a 48% reduction in total symptoms of PMS.

 

IMPROVES FAT LOSS

Studies found that that diets rich in calcium do seem to have been associated with a reduced incidence of being overweight or obese. Calcium plays a critical role in regulating the secretion of hormones like insulin, growth hormone, and sex hormones thus inadequate calcium intakes could result in hormonal and metabolic changes that increase fat accumulation and hidden fat loss. Studies have found that calcium supplementation may help to lose fat and maintain a proper body weight. In placebo-controlled clinical trial researchers found that calcium supplementation women supplemented with daily 1,200 mg of calcium lost significantly more weight compared to a control group.
